The women met the man more than 100km from Adelaide. He drove them to a campsite at Salt Creek in Coorong national park, where he allegedly kidnapped, sexually assaulted and tried to murder the women.

One of the women managed to escape.

“She ran straight to the car yelling. She opened the back door, jumped straight in and like, get me out of here, get me out of here. He’s going to kill us all’,” fisherman Abdul-Karim Mohammed told 7 News.

A 59-year-old South Australian man has been charged with attempted murder and unlawful sexual intercourse with the two women.
